    Research Highlights: KMUTT Fixed Point Theory and Applications Research Group

    Even though our laboratory is named ‘KMUTT Fixed Point Theory and Applications Research Group’, this is not the only topic we study and expertised. At present, we also do extensive research in the areas of Nonsmooth optimization, Numerical analysis, Game theory and Convex analysis. We also include applications of such topics involving Optimal control, Dynamical systems, Differential and integral systems, and Digital imaging technology.
    As we usually did, we have published our research articles in several reputed international journals and still in experiments to wide range of future research perspectives.
    Our research philosophy now is to explore more with high-performance computer, both to discover hidden facts and behaviors to help the development of new results, and to apply and simulate our obtained results in complicate scenarios. To illustrate our focus in this computer-driven researches, we pick some interesting results to highlight our method to study.

Authors: Plen Saiparaa, Poom Kumama, Yeol Je Cho
Subjects: Mathematics

In this paper, we prove some random fixed point theorems for Hardy– Rogers self-random operators in separable Banach spaces and, as some applications, we show the existence of a solution for random nonlinear integral equations in Banach spaces. Some stochastic versions of deterministic fixed point theorems for Hardy–Rogers self mappings and stochastic integral equations are obtained.

In this paper, we modify the general iterative method to approximate a common element of the set of solutions of split variational inclusion problem and the set of common fixed points of a finite family of k-strictly pseudo-contractive nonself mappings. Finally, some examples to study the rate of convergence and some illustrative numerical examples are presented

Subjects: Mathematics

In this paper,we introduce the modified proximal point algorithm for common fixed points of asymptotically quasi-nonexpansive mappings in CAT(0) spaces and also prove some convergence theorems of the proposed algorithm to a common fixed point of asymptotically quasi-nonexpansive mappings and a minimizer of a convex function. Moreover, we then give numerical examples to illustrate and show efficiency of the proposed algorithm for supporting our main results.

Subjects: Mathematics

In this paper, we slightly modify the hybrid steepest method to obtain a strong convergence. We regard the CQ algorithm as a fixed point algorithm for averaged mapping, and study the SFP by the hybrid steepest method. In the last section, we also give some numerical examples for study behavior convergence analysis of this algorithm.

KMUTT-Fixed Point Theory and Applications Research Group

By: Poom Kumam
Subjects: Mathematics

In our research group at KMUTT, we have a great diversity of research directions. Members in our groups work in small clusters, but with strong connections in between. Each of the clusters concerns with a particular kind of problems. Some clusters provide the others with new useful tools and methods, while some clusters make use of others to accomplish the desired outcomes. With this effective character, we have over fifty papers published each year in highly qualified journals, and they are on different purposes, aspects, approaches, and methods.
